Town cautions Greenwich residents on water use.
Toxins found in groundwater

Anyone build a house in the last twenty years without a sprinkler system?
Cha-ching….cha-ching…..that $37 million MISA just got to be WAY MORE now that contamination is in soil AND water….gotta luv that orchestra pit that is built under the water table, too.
The management of Greenwich Ct has been indifferent at best. It is a shame. Always cutting corners and they always come back to haunt you in the end. Which is what is happening now.
The MISA discovery was a bit of a no-brainer. PCB’s and metals like lead, arsenic and barium sink in water. The back of the auditorium is over an old peat bog that developed over 10,000 years next to Brothers Brook, which ran diagonally through the High School site, formerly known as 10-acre swamp.
If contaminated soil was dumped there to fill the swamp, the contaminants sunk all the way to the bottom. Pumping out the water will create a hydraulic down-gradient that will cause all the contaminants in the swamp to drain to that point.
Does anybody see a problem with this scenario? This is not a trivial de-watering issue around a foundation.
Earth Image – What do you think has happened to the water – the streams and brooks that surround the site? Do you think it is contaminated as well?
GG- Ask your contacts in Milbrook what they know from their own pond dredgings downstream from the High School. Since the heavy stuff sinks to the bottom, it should still be down there under the MISA footprint until the pumping starts for the de-watering process.
Do you think this will add to the cost?
Matt Damon said it’s because of all the fracking in Greenwich.
He’s gotta be smart, he got an Oscar like AlGore.
